While you’re working your 9-5, Terrell Owens is trying to get on somebody’s payroll too! Terrell’s “God Ain’t Thru With Me Yet” attitude has earned him the opportunity to try-out with the Seattle Seahawks today (8/6/2012). This would be the comeback that his career (and his wallet) needs.
What do you think? Does Terrell still have what it takes?
USA Today reports
Terrell Owens’ one-season NFL exile may not extend to a forced retirement.
The headline-making wideout will try out with the Seattle Seahawks on Monday.
Owens has not been on an NFL roster since playing for the Cincinnati Bengals in 2010. He will be 39 in December, is coming off a torn knee ligament, has an infamous reputation as a divisive locker room presence and was fired by the Allen (Texas) Wranglers of the Indoor Football League this year.
Over the course of 15 seasons, T.O. has been one of the most prolific receivers in NFL history, catching 1,078 passes for 15,934 yards and 153 TDs, the latter two figures ranking second all-time.
But in addition to his often controversial presence, Owens has been in the news recently for his financial difficulties, including failure to pay child support.
